    Then it morphed into like a panther/tegu I'm not even sure at this point, and I came and posted about it on this thread, then I woke up.

    Damn, I wish I could get a pet snake.

    Unfortunately, there's two things standing in the way.

    1. Not allowed pets in the house I live in.
    2. To get a snake, I'd have to first get a reptile licence from the government (costs $55.60 but lasts five years) and then buy the snake (around $300), but not before paying my reptile movement fee of $3 to the government. And buying all the other necessary gear to actually keep the snake.

    So yeah, quite a bit of money in total.

    Well no, I'm not sure what was even happening. Do you know when in a dream, you know what something is supposed to be, even if it's not that. Well in my dream I though it was a panther for some reason, but when I woke up I realized it was more of a tegu. Maybe a large tegu, but not that big.

    You need a licence to buy a reptile in Britain? That is extremely unreasonable.

    My friend's snake is pretty kickin rad, it even muffles his microphone when he was on teamspeak and tried to hide in his bass speaker.

    A few months back we found out there was an armadillo living in my neighborhood. We'd see it scurry across the roads and shit. One day we went out and got it, took it outback and fed it some shit, we didn't know what armadillos ate, so after some googling we got some leftover fishing worms for it. It came back every now and then and me and my friend that got it named it "ArmadillBRO" because we're all unclever bastards.

    Sad thing is though, we got a bit of snow back during the "snowpocalypse", and believe me here, Georgia NEVER gets snow, at least not where I live. Haven't seen the guy since, so either the snow killed it or he became some redneck's speed-bump.

    Miss you armadillbro.

    Also, that is a really neat OP, kudos for the effort.

    Only exotic he has, apart from some fish. he's had it for nearly a year I believe or less, I've forgotten his name but i'll edit it in this post when I remember/ask him again.
    I was amazed how quickly it adapted to him and his family, at first to get it out it's cage they had to actually reach in and grab him, now you can open the cage and he'll slither towards the exit to be picked up and then proceed to wrap himself around you.

    I normally believe fish make boring pets. They aren't very bright, hard to interact with and seem more like decorations than companions.

    Then I found out about lumpsuckers.

    I think you need to see a psychologist, if it's getting worse. They bothered me a tad at first, but I can safely smash them in my hands if need be.

    I hear it's possible for them to bite. Is this true?

    They have mouths, eat, yadayada. So yeah, they can bite, but I've yet to be bitten by one (or their bite is so weak I don't feel shit).

    Those common feeder crickets don't have much of a bite, or much strength period. Scratching an itch with your fingernails does more harm than a feeder cricket bite.

    You have bees? Nice. They aren't considered exotic, but as pets they are pretty damn rare.

    I don't keep them myself, just sort of watch. Me parents do all the work.
    They do consider them pets and not just a resource.


    The honey is nice, though

    I had to help get them out of the tree... Absolutely terrifying.
    The procedure was simple but delicate. I held a box underneath while my mum whacked the branch very hard with a stick so they fell out.

    It's called neurotoxin, bro. Knock 'em out then let them fall. They wake up like nothing.

    Sadly it seems no-one on FacePunch besides us care about animals, for the thread almost had a necro-bump there. If the other sections were updated and the thread was more lively then I would make the fish section much larger with pictures, websites, and other such to your specifications. Since it's your section, after all.

    Not too bad. With college and all I've probably not kept as much upkeep as I should be doing by the books, but it's a healthy system. That one big pink coral in the center there is growing all over the place. Nothing has died recently.

    The OP gave me a good read so I'll share some advice.

    Never buy snails for a fish tank, my friend was like "Oh they'll clean the tank for me". Two weeks later there were like 50 of them in there.

    I think he sold them though, so lodsamonie.

    They're really annoying, like little snots all over the place.



    I murdered them.
